Cross-training is important for the feet, says Dr. Johanna Youner, board-certified podiatric surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. It is important to switch up your exercise routine so that you are not doing the same activity every single day. Failure to do this can lead to injury because certain muscles will be overworked while others are neglected. In addition, just walking normally will keep foot muscles functioning properly as you age.
